Don’t Allow Supply Chain Issues to Delay Your Project

The last two years have been incredibly stressful for the healthcare industry and the many incredible people working in the field. In addition to the stress of treating an influx of patients caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, these organizations faced immense challenges in the supply chain. The issues with the supply chain are having a significant impact on organizations that are building and activating new facilities. Healthcare facilities are now facing delays upwards of five months for equipment to be delivered (Aeppel). These delays negatively impact the schedule for new projects and make it more challenging to provide patient care for all those in need.

Compounding the problem is that project teams in the field often have limited visibility to the status of the medical equipment, furniture, and IT devices that must be delivered and installed to open a new facility on time. Information about the status of these products often resides in spreadsheets exported from planning tools, ERP systems, and so forth. FitUp is a technology solution that allows healthcare organizations to track the ordering, shipment, and delivery of equipment, furniture, & IT. With FitUp, healthcare facilities can track, in real-time, on interactive dashboards what equipment has been purchased, shipped to the warehouse or the site, installed, tested, etc.

FitUp ensures that your project is successful and delivered on time. For more information, check out our website, https://www.usefitup.com/fitup/

Benefits of having Attainia and FitUp on your Project

Attainia and FitUp are both used by many healthcare organizations to track medical equipment from planning to installation.  FitUp and Attainia are now integrated so that all product information that is managed in Attaina is automatically uploaded into FitUp and updated as changes are made in Attainia.

Medical Equipment Planners utilize Attainia to create the preliminary equipment budget, specify vendor-specific equipment and manage changes for the medical equipment that will be purchased on a project. Users will make updates to Attainia as products move through the project lifecycle stages of Planned, Validated, Sent to Purchasing, and Purchased. Once items are received at the warehouse other users begin to use FitUp to track what products are in the Warehouse, when they are Requested to Site, Received on Site, Stagged, Placed in Room, and Complete.

The benefits of using both applications are listed below:

  1. The entire project team has visibility to the status of all products throughout the activation process
  2. Any change to product data in Attainia is automatically reflected in FitUp
  3. Drive Collaboration between medical equipment planners the logistics team

Everything in one place


HTS, Inc. FitUp software takes critical project data from multiple sources, then combines and delivers the data to a user-friendly interface. One heavily-used and much lauded feature of FitUp is the Project Dashboard, which provides a broad overview of the entire project. The dashboard contains three core modules: Product Status, Room Readiness, and Issues. Using these modules one can see not only the progress of the building itself, but also of the building load process. Additionally, visibility is given to the issue resolution process – whether the issue lies with the building itself or materials and equipment loaded within it. The dashboard is especially useful when doing ‘report outs’ with clients and stakeholders because it gives those parties a comprehensive status report at a glance.

Who FitUp Is For


Our FreightTrain software has been a vital tool for our Building Load and Logistics team during the Building Load phase of our projects as it helps us track a piece of equipment through the process of going from the initial plan, through the procurement process, all the way to its deployment and installation in its final location.

While our FitUp module is oriented around product deployment and is used primarily by the teams responsible for deployment, like the BLL team, it can be beneficial to many other parties, including Biomedical Engineering, notably during their incoming equipment inspections. By utilizing the product status feature and product details page in FitUp, Biomed can track the exact equipment that is incoming, know where it will be staged for their inspections, and once tagged, users can enter key information into our system that allows them to track the date of inspection, asset tag, and serial number. Once the project is complete, Biomed can extract the information and upload it into their software. With a multitude of features and data values, FreightTrain’s FitUp module holds valuable utility across many aspects of a project.

What FitUp Does


HTS, Inc. FreightTrain FitUp software provides powerful tools for use during the activation of a new hospital. Providing real-time data on the status of medical equipment, IT appliances, furniture, and the building itself, FreightTrain allows all stakeholders to stay up-to-date on the status of a given project.

FitUp provides accurate status by way of room checks. Using an owner-verified checklist, the project team can easily verify checklist criteria and log issues while walking the building. Any issues are then automatically assigned to a pre-designated team member for remediation.

By giving the end-user a tool that guides them through identifying issues while keeping owners updated, FreightTrain helps bring buildings to life!

How FitUP Was Created

Floor Plan

FreightTrain ‘s FitUp was created from the many frustrations and lessons learned from over a decade of experience in loading a building. One of the unique and powerful features of FitUp is the Visual Fragnet (VF). The Visual Fragnet provides colorized layouts of a project’s building(s) based on user searches. Users can search for particular equipment, and the map will colorize the rooms where the equipment will be installed.

With multiple display formats to choose from, project teams can leverage these maps to visually monitor the status of all assets and rooms in the building. Deployment teams can export, print, and distribute these layouts to assist in their deployment processes.
